A word from Osteria Dei Ganzi
Set in a 120 year old historical mansion, Ganzi offers casual italian dinning experience, with focus on quality food, exceptional service and affordability.

Our menu features classic dishes made according to the traditional recipes, with DOP certified ingredients imported straight from Italy. In true Osteria fashion, our wine menu is equally authentic and robust; featuring privately imported regional Italian wines which we are proud to offer by the glass. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "It's a more casual and noisy place that what we thought, but food and service are great. Notable is the fact that waiters and bar tenders know their drinks and wine, and not just pretend like in some other Italian places... Can't wait to experience the outdoor dining, seems like a fun place to be in summer (if it ever comes this year)"

  • "Fried olives starter was way too salty - and olives were clearly out of a store jar. Specials were not available and told about it almost 15 minutes after ordering. Desserts were sub par. Cocktails were excellent and looks like they have a great patio, so would give it another chance in the summer."

  • "We enjoyed an excellent dinner here and received terrific service. In an old mansion, the surroundings are opulent, yet relaxed and comfortable. Love the marble table tops too. I look forward to returning with family and friends - often."

  • "The food is sub-par. My fish was over-cooked and my vegetables under-cooked. The server appeared rushed; he rattled off the specials at such a fast pace I had to ask him to repeat himself. He also steered us to a more expensive wine than we had initially ordered. The very open dining rooms mean that it is impossible to escape the noise of a rowdy crowd alongside you. I would not recommend this restaurant to my friends and have no intention to revisit it."

  • "This restaurant was amazing. We were impressed with the service, the friendliness of the staff, the food and how accommodating everyone was and helpful because we were running a little late for a ballet. It was just a great experience. It was quite noisy when we were there and trying to get into the seats was very difficult as the restaurant was very crowded (table wise and people wise) but overall it was a great experience."

  • "The nice scenery made us feel special, and the service was excellent. Well cooked food, and no complaints I can think of. Will come back."

  • "This restaurant has a great ambience. It is a mansion converted to a restaurant with great artwork and character. The service was a bit slow but it is understandable as it was Valentine's day dinner and the place was packed. That night they had a pre-fixe menu but we opted to eat from there regular menu and what a disappointment that was. I had confirmed before we went if we had to have the prix fixe menu that night and I confirmed that we had the choice. If they can't handle the regular menu on such a busy night, they shouldn't offer it Though the staff is friendly, the food was a big disappointment. My food tasted funny and my wife's food was very bland. Neither of us ate our food even though we were starving."

  • "My boyfriend and I went to this restaurant on New Years for their set menu. The food is pretty average, not great by all means. Maybe it's just their set menu, but the food taste the same as any other Italian restaurant you would find in Toronto. For Toronto, this kind of offering just can't compete. However service was great and ambiance was excellent. The restaurant seems to be remodeled from an old mansion."

  • "Had dinner here with a couple of friends and was pleasantly surprised by this fairly new addition to the neighbourhood. We had an early dinner, so it wasn't too busy, and the service was fantastic. Not once did I have to ask for my water to be refilled, and our server was so knowledgeable about the food, right down to the history behind one of the cheeses they were using in the sauce! The dishes we had (all pastas) were rich and bursting with flavour, exactly what I want in my Italian food. Loved the tiramisu in the mason jar - perfectly done, with a casual flair. Loved that the chef came out to check on us too. I'd been to this converted Victorian mansion previously, and they have continued to preserve the gorgeousness of the interior."

  • "Lovely setting with the friendliest service I have seen in a long time.the chef visited and greeted all tables with a smile. Sadly the food was only mediocre, not bad, but not on par with similar restaurants at the same price level."

  • "It was a little pricey for what it was, and cold on a January day. However, I will say the ambience was cozy and cute, and I bet it's even better in the summer when the patio's open."

  • "From the warm welcome you receive upon arrival, to the amazing decor, fantastic service and fabulous food, this place has it all."

  • "We picked Osteria for a joint anniversary with good friends. And we were utterly satisfied with the overall experience. The wait staff were prompt and extremely knowledgeable not to mention friendly. The menu was not pretensions which made for easy picking of choices for the group. Defiantly several re-visits are order for us."

  • "They ran out of fillet steak and served another cut instead. My guest found it was over charred and bitter crust on outside. They prepared another but by then the rest of our group had finished. Their apps were pricey for what you got. $28 for small pieces of hard cheese and few slices of procuitto and another cold cut. Their caprese was unexciting. Small piece of mozzerello with tomato cut on the diagonal with a sprinkle of balsamic was unexciting and tasteless. The pizza was ok. Our dinners with coffees and drinks came to $65 pp. Expensive for the quality of food you get. Service was excellent though. Very attentive. If only kitchen could be the same."

  • "considering they just opened, their service and food were great. I'm looking forward to next summer when I can enjoy the large patio"

  • "The food was, just lacking. It was a huge cavernous space with basically no other patrons. The carpaccio was missing lemon or balsamic, it definitely needed acid. My main was a chicken that had sauce on it. The flavour was okay, but the texture was slimy."
